This campaign is complicit and supportive of the one which, since 2012, has become one of the symbols of the fight for the liberation of the Earth from the chains of capitalism: the resistance to defend the Hambach forest!
Since 6 years people from all over the world, through blockades, sabotage, and occupation of trees, have give birth to a grassroots resistance to oppose the action of devastation carried on by the energy corporation RWE which, since the end of the 70’s has colonised one of the last virgin forests, converting Hambach into the most extended open-cast mine for the extraction of lignite (brown coal) in Europe.

The door was kicked in, a flash grenade was thrown into the house, and a full swat team entered. With their assault rifles drawn, the swat team proceeded to pull everyone out of bed some of whom were naked, and with one exception, put everyone in handcuffs. Three people were detained and one person arrested. Cedar, a member of The Tower Collective and our cherished friend, was arrested, taken away, and currently remains in custody.

From June 11th

June 11th is an international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and all long-term anarchist prisoners. A spark in the eternal night of state repression. A day set aside for honoring those who have been stolen from us. On this day, we share in songs, events, and actions to celebrate our captured comrades and loved ones. In years past, June 11th celebrations have been international and wide-ranging – from potlucks with friends to various inspiring attacks; fundraising benefits and prisoner letter writing nights to all of the untold and unknown ways we keep the flame alive.

On March 27 in Toulouse, two houses were raided and two people were placed in detention, but they were taken 300km away to the city of Limoges. These two people were released 38 hours later, after a long interrogation on their political positions and social networks.
